The Dallas Cowboys secured a win against the Eagles on Sunday, moving the team to 4-5. However, Jason Garrett's job is still firmly on the line, and numerous candidates have been rumored to replace Garrett as head coach.
Garrett's tenure as head coach has been spotty at best. His offensive unit has been explosive, but the 46-year-old's clock management and overall team discipline has been poor.
His career record is 17-16 and he has yet to win a playoff game in his two-and-a-half seasons with the Cowboys. Actually, he has yet to lead the Cowboys to the playoffs, with Dallas falling a game short in 2011, in large part thanks to a late-season collapse.
These performances, and Dallas' slow start, has warmed Garrett's seat to the point of third-degree burns—at least before Sunday's game.
Some of the people mentioned are nonsense, and some could actually come to fruition. So, to help sort out the likely from the never-going-to-happen, let's take a look at the most likely candidates to replace Garrett if he is fired.
